Broke myself. Have 12/28-30 spot @ Mustang Powder. Please Help!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I booked a spot on the 12/28-30 trip with Mustang Powder in BC. Then I went to a local molehill back east, and blew out my left Achilles' tendon on the first day out, ending my season. 

 

I'm into this Mustang trip for ~ US$2200. Is there anyone who would be willing/able to take my spot, so I'm not just completely screwed? How about US$1600? The fee includes everything, except booze (i.e., guided skiing, bed, and some incredible food) and tips ($80-100/day for the entire staff is customary). You would need to be able to be at the Skyline Esso truck stop southwest of Revelstoke between 3 and 3:30pm on 12/27.

 

As you can easily see by looking at their website, there are still openings on this trip, so Mustang isn't able to do anything to help me out. It sucks, but I understand where they're coming from. But maybe you can help me out, and get a sweet deal on a sweet trip at the same time.

 

Please PM-me for questions, details, or offers. (Also see their website.)

Bumping so you don't have to do it yourself.

 

I'm doing my first lifetime cat trip and it could also be my first skiing ever in Canada at Mustang in February. I heard it was the best place.

I think I've arrived at the "make me an offer" point. If you can swing the logistics, just PM me an offer. I may not accept, but I promise not to be a little bitch about it. :)

I live close. Except I'm in Phoenix till the 28th. I would be interested in the 29-30 dates. If mustang will pick me up at 3ish on the 28th. Won't pay more than $350/day. I was skiing very close last weekend for free. Conditions are adequate but not ideal. Sorry about your ankle.

@surfacehoar I appreciate the offer, but Mustang seems pretty adamant about 'you snooze you lose' on missing the appointed pickup. Also, asking for special accommodation... it's just not in their interests; they can just say no, and keep all my money and not have to take anyone skiing. It just doesn't sound like a match. I appreciate the offer though. Thanks!

That's one of the problems with a remote lodge operation.  They have to commit a lot of resources to the logistics of moving one group out and another in, in an efficient as way as possible.

Thanks to everyone for their input and help! It's been taken care of, and (mercifully) in a way that ended up being very kind to me, which is most appreciated as I sit here with my gimpy foot up in the air.
